Oregon, Graeagle, 4th of July


Well lots of travel this week. Monday my mom, Giada and I headed to Eugene, Oregon to visit her youngest brother who moved there last year. It was a beautiful drive and an adventure no doubt. Considering its a 8 hour drive, if you don't stop, Giada did well on the 11 hour trek to get there. My mom played with her in the back when she was awake and sat up with me when she was sleeping. We made some stops in beautiful Ashland for lunch along a creek and some shopping and some interesting rest stops to feed along the way. Ashland and Eugene were both so beautiful, green luscious hills, rivers, creeks, lakes, and covered bridges everywhere. No wonder they had no trouble moving there.

Hanging out in Ashland for lunch. Mom bought me a new hat and some new toys while we were there to keep me occupied along the way. She even let me drive along the way....at a rest stop that is. This was one of our creepier rest stops. We pulled off and there was nothing there but this junk yard. My scrapbooking mom had to document it of course!




While we were in Eugene my uncle took a couple days off to show us around. We hiked to the top of a Butte and could see the whole city.

Giada took a nap on the way down!


Then the next day we went to the Oregon coast to play at the beach, it was a little windy but we had a great time. There was hardly anyone there!! Not like the CA beaches that's for sure. The water was chilly, but Giada had a great time poking her toes in the sand, and didn't seem bothered by the cold water on her feet. She made funny faces for sure, and wasn't quite sure what I was doing to her!
Documenting the first time to the beach of course!


She was such a good sport hanging out in the Bjorn all week. We hiked down these hills to get to the beach, what a beautiful place!


My new hat is not that cute, but SPF 50 and protected my head!! Kelly thanks for joining us for FFF (Forced family fun!)


Playing Piano with Uncle Chris!


The reason my uncle moved there was to work at Fall Creek, a blueberry nursery. We took a tour while we were there, boy were the berries yummy!


Rest stop break on the way home was a much better location! Every few hours we liked to get out of the car and take a break!


We got home late Thursday night and headed to Graeagle Friday morning to celebrate the 4th.

While we were there we....
Roasted a pig...

Saw a deer in the backyard... Wore festive outfits...

Played with Nonna and Nonno...
Went swimming....

Watched fireworks....



Went to the pancake breakfast...they served yummy Gin Fizzes while you waited!
(Don't worry Bush, they have nothing on yours!!)
And went strolling and shopping with the gang on Main Street!
Long fun week filled with 1sts!! Giada is starting to scoot around everywhere we are watching for the crawl. The rice cereal is going down a little better this week, and lots of drooling, maybe those teeth are coming soon. We are working on the sleeping at night, which is tough for me, but I know will be better in the long run!! I'm finally getting tired and need a little sleep!
